Our water heater went out on a Monday. I called Tim and he was able to come over and evaluate our needs. By Tuesday afternoon, I had a new water heater installed. His prices were reasonable, service was excellent and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a plumber.

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow

Flood control systems

Backwater valves are generally easier and cheaper to install but they have some limitations. For one, you cannot use any of the facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

Backwater valves

prevent sewer backflow

If so the footing drains or seepage tile will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service. Contact us today for more information.

Regular maintenance for optimal preparedness

Some maintenance is required to keep the protection measure in operation. If a backwater valve is recommended to prevent sewer backups, you should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year.
